Georgetown, Great Exuma, is truly a special place. Five minutes to deserted, white sand beaches as serene and untouched as they were 5000 years ago. Or, just a short drive away from all the amenities necessary for comfort. This isn't a dream, nor is it just the Caribbean once thought lost; it's one of the last uncrowded places and truly where the soul of the Bahamas still quietly resides.
The tropical waters of the Exumas are considered to be amongst the most beautiful in the Caribbean, if not the world; waters so clear you'd swear you could breathe them in. World-travelled yachters hold this to be true and return year after year to take in the unrivaled colors and pristine beaches. Some, like Johnny Depp, David Copperfield, amongst others who can choose anywhere in the world to have a home, have learnt the secret of Exuma, and have homes in the islands surrounding Georgetown.
In the Exumas you will find unspeakable beauty, without the crowds. The answer for people trying to get away from the rush of life, but who need the accessibility of basic amenities. Our international airport, with direct links from Atlanta, Toronto, Miami, with American Airlines, Continental, or Air Canada, provide a direct link to a 40 mile island with under 3500 population. Exuma has the perfect balance of comfort, accessibility, and vast, unspoiled nature.
Exuma allows you to transition from city life, to having your feet in pristine sand, your head under the clearest water, or your hand on a fishing rod, faster than any other destination in the Caribbean. With bone fishing, diving, surfing, kite surfing, kayaking, golf, and a host of other activities, Georgetown is the place for so many adventures. This, coupled with wonderful people, and a simple life, makes it worth getting to know.
